Just in time for the Christmas season, St. James Episcopal Church in Tigard welcomes our new priest. The Reverend Beth Kohlmeyer Mallon grew up in the Willamette Valley and is excited about entering into life with the entire Tigard area community. She was ordained a priest on June 23, 2018, after nearly 14 years as a vocational deacon, 11 of which were served at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Wilsonville. Beth has a passion for preaching, a heart for those who are “out there” and not yet at the table, and for making sure that worship services are never dull.
Long before ministry began, Beth graduated from Western Oregon University and taught sixth grade for two years in Monmouth. She and her husband, Kevin, then moved to Nebraska while they attended graduate school, where she picked up an MBA degree. The couple then moved to Northern California to be close to his parents. She worked as a personnel manager and they started their family. Beth and her husband, a psychologist for the VA, and their two children moved “home” to Oregon in 2007.
She looks forward to meeting folks in Tigard, and plans on holding some of her office hours in local coffee shops – she’ll be the one wearing a clerical collar and offering to buy the first cup. And she will answer to “Beth,” “Pastor Beth,” or “Rev. Beth.”
Rev. Beth's first Sunday at St. James will be this coming Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018 - the First Sunday of Advent! In addition to preaching and celebrating the Eucharist this coming Sunday, Rev. Beth will be holding an Open Forum during Coffee Hour where she will share some initial thoughts and respond to questions. Be sure to come out and meet Rev. Beth and her husband Kevin this coming Sunday!
